This was the scene outside my window in Fairless Hills, PA, around 5:30 this morning…the first snowfall of the winter. I’m sorry the photo is so dark, but I didn’t want to use a flash and draw attention to the fact I’m a geek up at 5:30 a.m. taking pictures of the first snowfall.
Well, anyway…for some reason, whenever I am home for the first snowfall of winter, I feel compelled to sit down at my keyboard and try to write something wintry (i.e., “Mountain Dance” by Dave Grusin). Well, instead, I went back into my archives and brought a song called “Eventually” into the 21st century. This song dates back to around 1989 or ’90. My former bandmate, Christian Beach, wrote different lyrics to the music I wrote and called this song “Second Look” (and I’m sure he’ll be happy to hear this song again).
Except for a couple of instances, this sounds pretty much just like the original version I wrote so many years ago. The lyrics in the first verse and the chorus have been around for ages. The bridge is something I started playing around with recently so that needs a lot of work. I quickly improvised the words in the second verse and those in the bridge are obviously temporary (when you listen, you’ll hear what I’m talking about).
